Attendance at Fitzharrys is at record levels because students enjoy coming to school. We want to encourage students to aim for 100% attendance as research shows there is a clear link between excellent attendance and high achievement, and good attendance will be a basic expectation for all our students in their future careers. The school’s Attendance Diamond and weekly monitoring help each student to aspire to their very best attendance.
We work hard to recognise good attendance, with rewards given to students at the end of each full term to celebrate the commitment and determination that comes with 100% attendance.
Unauthorised absences (such as holidays) detract from a student’s 100% attendance record; authorised absences (such medical appointments) do not affect it.
